White-White-White Cake

May 5, 2011
Happy 27th Anniversary to my wonderful parents!  (Yes, my parents got married on Cinco de Mayo!).
It seems like every post this week has started with “Happy ___!” And I’m sure many of you were expecting me to say “Happy Cinco de Mayo!” today.  BUT… today is my parents’ anniversary and that always rules over Cinco de Mayo 🙂.  With this, I have dedicated this post and this cake to my parents!
I love white.  It reflects a fresh, clean, and pure feeling.  I know some people think that white feels sterile and unhappy, but to me, it’s just the opposite.  White brings happiness.
I have been wanting to make an all white cake for a long time. White cake – white chocolate filling – white fondant. Yum – Yum – Yum!  So when I was thinking of a cake to make for my parents anniversary, this was the perfect option!
This cake was probably one of the best that I made!  The simple vanilla cake is a classic that can’t go wrong.  And the white chocolate filling, was flavorful, creamy, and the perfect combination with the white cake.  Then topping is off with a fondant (and not the icky sugary stiff fondant, but a perfectly sweet marshmallow fondant) made the cake complete…. Completely amazing!
I have now added 3 go-to recipes to my collection, and I am very excited!  I have made a lot of white cake recipes – and I mean a lot.  But finally I found one that is perfect… yes, dare I say perfect 🙂.
One of the best things about this cake is not just the way it tasted but the way it looks.  It looks so fresh and sweet. I really can just look at this cake and be happy!
I hope you enjoy this cake as much as I did!
Oh, and also… Happy Cinco de Mayo :).
Tune in tomorrow for one more “Happy” occasion!

    Sometimes I just laugh when you do things like this. You never cease to amaze me!!! When I think about my life I know that I have many things I can be proud of, but the one thing I can boast about is that I am the father of 2 incredible, beautiful, talented, and most important, God fearing, young ladies. I love being your Dad!!!! Thanks so much for the gift of you…..can’t wait to see you in a couple of weeks. Love you two!!!! Dad
